Complaints? No, you can't speak a manager.

This blog is for the restaurant servers that deal with the struggles of ignorant customers, idiotic coworkers, unfair managers and things a mere mortal just could not handle. (not associated with @server_life on IG or @TipOrGoHome on twitter, but go follow them too!)

shizzan said: I literally had this older couple tonight, who were one of my last tables, leave me a 20 for their 50$ tab. On top of that the 20 was a fake.

PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING.

that’s just downright awful, servers aren’t there because we wanna be. those tips are OUR MONEY WE NEED THEM IN ORDER TO SURVIVE.

that’s ridiculous and I’m so sorry

you can always trade things in a restaurant, and by things I mean like shift work or favors or whatever:

examples:

a.) you’re working a shift and aw shit you ran out of cigarettes, let’s ask a willing coworker who’s off to drive but what do they get out of it? you can always throw some money their way (but hey, you need to save) OR you can do some of their side work

b.) man, you’re fucking tired. you’ve been a double for three days straight and you want to swap for first cut. this one might be kinda tough to pull off but usually some people are willing to do it if you take a shift they don’t want.
OR you can find your desperate for money coworkers (you know, the girl who just got a DUI and is working everyday even hosting, yeah she’ll kiss your feet when you ask her.) and ask them. it’s usually a definite yes.

c.) so you hate that dreaded line sweep? well it just so happens that another cut coworker hates full hands. see if you can talk them into the final line sweep by doing yours and their full hands (i do this a lot, fuck sweeping)

Ya know, friendly advice.

"Maybe I should just supplicate myself before you so you can whip me with your menu."

A hilarious poetry short film. Anyone who’s worked in food service (or isn’t a jerk) will understand.
